In my previous post, I mentioned that I'm using Buffer to measure how many people click the links that I share in Twitter. I shouldn't really be surprised, but I got far more clicks for three fun videos than for anything else.


Is everyone on the internet only interested in Fifty Shades of Gray, Harlem Shake videos, and cats?


Although I got many clicks on those videos (especially relative to my number of Twitter followers), I didn't gain followers. Trendy and fun topics and links might lure people to check a Tweet and follow a link. But if they're not interested in the topics that I care about, those people won't stick around.


Have you been successful leveraging trends to reach out to people? If you have, please share your tips.
